Indian Feed Additives Market to Grow at 12.3% During 2022-2027, Spurred by Rising Livestock Population

Published on Jul 04, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indian Feed Additives Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the Indian feed additives market size is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period (2022-2027). Feed additives are dietary supplements formulated by combining nutrition-rich ingredients such as feed attractants, immunostimulants, probiotics, acidifiers, and essential oils. They consist of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other essential nutrients that help improve the health and metabolism of animals and enhance their immune function, stress resistance, and reproduction. They also improve the quality of animal-derived products such as meat, milk, and eggs. As a result, feed additives are widely utilized across India for maintaining the overall health of the livestock on a commercial and non-commercial scale.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Indian Feed Additives Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising livestock population in the country. India currently represents one of the countries with the highest livestock population in the world. It is also one of the largest producers of milk, beef, broilers, eggs, and fish. Besides this, the escalating demand for food and animal-derived products due to the increasing population is also contributing to the market growth. In addition, with the changing lifestyles and growing consciousness toward health and wellness, consumers are widely adopting food rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals over cereals. This, coupled with the rising emphasis of dairy farmers on livestock disease prevention, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, increasing exports, the growing concerns among individuals regarding the quality of animal products, and facility expansion and mergers and acquisition (M&A) activities conducted by the leading players are some of the other factors creating a favorable market outlook across India.
